About @:Toolerstone

Toolerstone is a not for profit ‘creative escape’ situated in private gardens in the Cheshire village of Sandiway. We offer a variety of day long creative workshops, all inspired by nature and the garden setting. The majority of our workshops are ‘gifted’ to people who work in the care industry, in hospitals and hospices, who dedicate their lives to looking after others. We want to say ‘thank you’ by offering them the chance to escape for the day in a safe, nourishing environment.

Vintage Textiles Workshop (Course inactive)

In-person
Eleanor Fountain - - #35325

I attended this workshop in July and the venue is fabulous, beautiful gardens & staff are so welcoming. Loved the fabrics & relaxing atmosphere. Food was delicious and I would definitely recommend. Jill the tutor was really helpful and full of handy hints.

Response from @:Toolerstone:

It's always lovely to get a fab review! Thank you.
We know you are a member of staff here @:Toolerstone. It makes sense for our staff to experience what we offer. It means that they can give our customers better information as they have done the workshops themselves! What will you try next?!
